Here's the set-up:
When Gina wakes up from a two-year coma, she realizes someone tried to kill her and make it look like suicide. Detective-in-training Lara Evans is assigned the case, but when she discovers who the main suspect is, she fears she’s in way over her head.
Meanwhile Detective Jackson learns the man in prison for murdering his parents is innocent of the crime and another officer coerced the detainee into a confession. As the two investigators work the cold files, members of their own department come under suspicion and their cases begin to overlap. Can they find the killers before the crimes of the past explode in the present?
From the reviewers:
Another Home Run: I have loved all of LJ Sellers books & this one is another home run. I am not going to give it an overview because others already have. However, this is why I love her books - the characters are developed well, the story itself is top notch, you are always surprised by the ending, the story is not too long but not too short, and you just don't want to put the book down.
Another Great Read: Det Jackson series just keeps getting better. What can I say...read em, you'll like em. Real easy and smooth and each book offers substantial character development...which just makes me hungrier for the next.
Great Addition To The Series: What can I say without giving away too much? Only this is a darned good police procedural involving characters you love to follow. I think L.J. Sellers gives us as good as J.D. Robb ever did. Maybe it's something to do with using two inits instead of a first name. Whatever it is, it's working.
Might Be The Best Yet: Detective Jackson, who we've come to love in other Sellers' mystery novels, is back in a big way in Dying For Justice and this time the case gets very personal. And when detective-in-training Lara Evans is assigned the case, the reader is treated to a yet another of Sellers' richly satisfying characters. One can't help but love the drama that ensues.
From the author:
I'm an award-winning journalist and the author of the Detective Jackson mystery/suspense series: The Sex Club, Secrets to Die For, Thrilled to Death, Passions of the Dead, and Dying for Justice. My novels have been highly praised by Mystery Scene and Spinetingler magazines, and all five are on Amazon Kindle's bestselling police procedural list.
I also have two standalone thrillers: The Baby Thief and The Suicide Effect. When not plotting murders, I enjoy cycling, social networking, and attending mystery conferences. I've also been known to jump out of airplanes.
